Rat Poison found in pet foods

Reuters is reporting that rat poison found in pet food is being blamed for at least 14 animal deaths in the United States.

The New York State Department of Agriculture has confirmed that the poison aminopterin originated in wheat that came from China and was used to make dog and cat food, reports USA Today.

Over 100 brands of tainted food, made by Menu brands, contained the poison, The Washington Post said.

Multiple law suits have been filed against Menu foods, including a $51 million suit filed in Ontario on Thursday, reports The New York Times.
